Welcome to the
Clearwater Lawn Bowling Club
Established in 1924
A 501(c) Nonprofit Organization
Clearwater Lawn Bowls Club was established in February 1924 and has been operating continuously ever since. Our club has had many successes including multiple regional and national champions. We have two greens which allow up to 22 games to played simultaneously. The spacious clubhouse has locker rooms, an accessible bathroom, a full kitchen and a large event area with tables and chairs.
Lawn bowling (or bowls) is a sport that all ages can enjoy. The aim of the game is to have your bowl (or bowls) closest to the target (the Jack). It is not as easy as it sounds because the Jack can be up to 130 feet away and the bowls don’t roll straight!
Bowls is enjoyed by men and women, all over the world and is unique, in that, men and women play bowls on an equal basis. The game relies on skill and strategy rather than physical strength.

How to Play - An Overview
Lawn bowls is an outdoor game in which a ball (known as a bowl) is rolled toward a smaller stationary ball, called a jack. The object is to roll your bowls so that they come to rest nearer to the jack than those of an opponent; this is sometimes achieved by knocking aside an opponent's bowl or the jack. The bowls are not exactly symmetrical- one side is more rounded than the other, causing the bowl to curve to one side as it slows down. This is referred to as the "bias" of the bowl.
The game takes place on a large rectangle called a green. Our green has an artificial surface instead of grass, and it is divided into rinks which are each 14 feet wide. Four types of games can be played:
To begin play, a jack is rolled to the opposite end of the rink.
Then players take turns rolling their bowls, trying to get close to the jack or to knock an opponent's bowl away from the jack. Each player's bowls are distinguished by color and by a unique design on the side. When all bowls have been played by both teams, an "end" has been played. Before play begins, the number of ends to be played is decided, with 10, 12 or 14 being the most common.
The bowl closest to the target jack bowl is called "the shot" and it scores one point. If the second closest bowl is from the same team, another point is scored. If the third closest bowl is from the other team, scoring is over since an opponent's bowl is now the next closest to the jack. In this example, the team that had the shot gets two points for this end.
Only one team earns points on each end. The team with the highest number of points at the completion of the specified number of ends is the winner.
Instruction and bowls are available to new bowlers, free of charge.
